Timir Goswami, aka Timbah, a 19 year old Sheffield, England native is making quite a name for himself, channelling his acknowledged influences; early James Blake and godfathers of the L.A. Beat scene, Flying Lotus & Samiyam.
He tends to specialize in that chopped up, re-falsetto’d R&B groove. The difference, of course, between Timbah and those dime-a-dozen, slopped and screwers (Ehrm… OG Ron C) is his capitalization on the down beat, subsequently driven by his array of spontaneously introduced, woozy-rhythmed percussion lines, not to mention his typically extemporaneous arrangements within the well-explored world of 140 beats per minute.
“With producers like Sheffield’s Timbah around, no R&B vocals are safe.”
